was very tough on him. i mean, i question obama. that's what you're supposed to do. by the way, o'reilly, you know, that's what o'reilly does and obama knew what he was getting into. it would be much better to have that back and forth which worked well for barack obama, thank you very much. >> pat buchanan, norah o'donnell and jonathan capehart. there you go. >> it's stunning, though. bill maher, bill o'reilly's not a patriot? >> that's ridiculous. >> look at what bill maher said about george w. bush and dick cheney. they were body blows for eight straight years. >> look, you invite bill o'reilly for a q & a, you get bill o'reilly for a q & a. sam donaldson did the same thing when he interviewed presidents back in the 1980s. people would say, here comes sam. if you can't handle it, get out of the kitchen. >> the president did handle it. i think the president got the best of everybody on there and the millions and millions and millions of people watching saw a president when he was asked why do people hate you, saw him laugh. he brushed the question aside and this is good for him.
. the number has grown to 733 businesses and unions that have received waivers for the obama care law. here's the problem, megyn. you good to the website, hhs.gov and you call it up and you see unions after unions, indiana u.f.c. local, united crafts benefits, united food, and then you come to the sciu. they have three waivers. here's a group that gave $27 million for mr. obama when he was running for president back in 2008. also, were the most vocal supporters for obama care during the debate and now they're asking for health care waivers for their own groups. 40% of the 733 names on this list are unions. that while only around 11% to 12% of the work force is unionized. let's call it overwhelmingly more popular on this list than the businesses. megyn: isn't that because of the mini med programs they offer? it started to unfold with companies like mcdonald's saying, we give them healthcare, but it's not big medical programs. and they would be penalized in a way that would make them choose getting rid of the policies or paying tons of dough. >> absolutely. megyn: the way i put it more nefari
said that he believes a republican will be president -- will beat president obama in 2012. he said he is seriously considering a second bid for the presidency. the governor was in washington, d.c. to kickoff a tour for his new book. the next stops are in the state's scheduled to hold the first presidential caucus in 2012, iowa. this is 50 minutes. >> can everybody hear me? good. it is great to see this great crowd here. wonderful. mike huckabee is here today. it is a part of his book tour to promote his newest book, "a simple government: twelve things we really need from washington (and a trillion that we don't!)." is an honor and pleasure to introduce a man who burst on the national stage in to those and it when he won our republican caucuses and finished third behind and john mccain and mitt romney in the nomination for president. he burst on page 6 of "the washington post." the question on many minds now is whether he will pursue the republican nomination in 2012. maybe he will tell us today. governor mike huckabee was born in 1955 in hope, ark., nine years after bill clinton was b

[ talking over each other ] >> our district -- >> we won, you lost when he came in. i'm sorry, we are in the majority right now. i'm a republican. walker is a republican. so is the assembly and senate. the senators need to come back and do their job. mark miller is my senator, sadly he needs to man-up, all of them need to man-up and do their job. they need their paychecks taken from them. they have no reason to be out there.

election he warned that barack obama's presidency would be like a jimmy carter second term. the joke didn't need any explanation. democrats responded to the differences between obama and president carter, not by defending the former president. even if carter became known for having one of the most active post presidential careers in american history, his time in the white house has remained a symbol of failed presidential leadership. over the past few months there have been many commentators who have compared obama to carter rather than fdr, and the nuns or ronald reagan. the point is clear. in contemporary political debate and in most history textbooks carter is consistently remembered as a president who failed to articulate a compelling political vision and who was unable to hold his party together. the image of a worn down carter hold up in the white house desperately trying to resolve the iran hostage crisis in to the final hours of his term became almost as iconic as the images of president john f. kennedy huddled with his brother robert trying to avert a nuclear war during the cuban
obama is at the white house most of this week. he is in miami on friday. in new york, the un secretary general congratulating the secretary -- security council in taking a united stand against libya. slapping sanctions on the libyaan leader, his family, and assisted. the white house is urging the leader to leave as soon as possible. in wisconsin, the budget battle continues. good morning for this sunday, february 27. if you could advise the president to sit down with one person, who would that be? 202-737-0001 our line for republicans and 202-737-0002 for democrats and if you are an independent, the number to call is 202-628-0205. a look at some of the headlines from outside washington. in madison, wisconsin, saturday's gathering the largest so far as 70,000 demonstrated against the budget cuts. the headline is -- the anatomy of a protest. meanwhile, from the pittsburgh post gazette, obama urges gadhafi to quit. many believe the changes could herald a new dawn of a new epoch after centuries of humiliation in the arab world. the "chicago tribune", rahm emanuel prepares to take over as t
.s. from drowning in debt. president obama is going to address. he previewed his 2012 budget. >> so after a decade of rising deficits, this budget asks washington to live within it's means, at the same time investing in our future. it cuts what we can't afford to pay for what we can't do without. that is what families do in hard times and that is what our country has to do as well. >> jamie: will it do enough to take on deficits topping 1.4 tripled. some republicans say, it doesn't even come close. john, good to see. how much is too much when it comes to spending? >> we are borrowing 43 cents out of every dollar we are spending. that is way too much. we continued on that path, we become italy. >> jamie: president says we have to do investing in future. are their areas that cause you more concern than others in terms of what the money will be spent on? >> the president said this is our sputnik moment but high speed rail is a train to nowhere. it's not workable in this country and there are other problems with that. i question whether the president is trying to pay off certain special inter
do starting this week. >> sean: let me ask you about president obama's involvement. the president has come out in support of the unions, obviously. he didn't put forward a budget that he was going to balance. he was cheerleading for those in the end would be pushing for bankruptcy and insolvency. what make of the president's involvement and the dnc and the president's group organizing for america? >> the president of the united states should start focusing on balancing the federal budget. it is a horrible mess. it is what diving these passive problems. -- what is driving these massive problems. the people who are here from wisconsin over the past week and over the weekend, the tens of thousands of protesters have every right to have their voices heard. i've said repeatedly i'm not going to let their voices over power the voices of the legitimate taxpayers who hired me to get the budget balanced. to show wisconsin is open for business. you have tens of thousands of protesters from chicago and nevada and new jersey and other places -- >> sean: one last question. you have said emphatical
: good morning, and welcome to "washington journal" on this monday, february 7, 2011. president obama will -- the chamber of commerce today for the first time as commander in chief. we will carry that live this morning on c-span at 11:30 a.m. our question to start "washington journal" -- should president obama court of the business community? the numbers to call -- let's take a look at a peace in "usa today" talking about the president's address at the chamber of commerce. obama faces business leaders. host: should the president of the business community? matt, caller from manhattan. what do you think the president should do here? caller: i think he ought to stand up to the business community once and for all. big business, corporations, don't pay taxes. corporations write their own regulations. the regulation is there should be no regulation. they are masters at obtaining what they once a through the government'. and if president obama had any hutzpah backbone, he would be in their face and represent the individual taxpayer. again, thank you for c-span. host: caller from illinois. we

[laughter] [applause] and the main thing is electing a republican president next year. [applause] we cannot put america on the right track until we elect a republican president in 2012. and a republican senate to join the republican house in enacting those crucial policies. we will not have the policies that lead to economic growth, job creation, smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, rational regulations, and the stronger american presence in the world in every dimension until we had a republican president to lead for those right policies, the ones that will achieve the right results for america and the world. namaste, the reckless policies of the obama administration and the left-wing congress has brou

. president obama also challenging mubarak to immediately begin a transfer of power in a brief statement last night, obama went on to praise those calling for democracy in egypt. >> it is not the role of any other country to determine egypt's leaders. only the egyptian people can do that. what is clear, what i indicated tonight to president mubarak is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful, must be peaceful, and it must begin now. to the people of egypt, particularly the young people of egypt, i want to be clear -- we hear your voices. i have an unyielding belief that you will determine your own destiny. >> transition of power now was the key there from president obama. his remarks came hours after mubarak said he would not seek re-election this september, but also said he would not yield to growing demands that he resign now. saying in part my top priority and responsibility is to restore the security and stability of the nation to ensure the peaceful transition of power. the egyptian leader vowed not to flee the country saying he would die on egyptian soil. his offer did no
the rest of his term. mubarak's announcements came after president obama publicly urged the egyptian leader not to run for another term. president obama addressed the situation in egypt after mubarak spoke. he said, an orderly transition must begin now. >> now, it is not the role of any other country to determine egypt's leaders. only the egyptian people can do that. what is clear, and what i indicated tonight to president mubarak, is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful. it must be peaceful. and it must begin now. >> and at this hour it's unclear how long the egyptian protests will continue but the reverb rations of this uprising are being felt throughout the middle east and the rest of the world. after weeks of protests in jordan, over the price of food and other issues, king abdula fired his government earlier today. abdula has changed his government in the past but this time is the first time he's done it in response to public demand. for all of the latest, joining us now from cairo is a contributor to "foreign affairs" magazine. thanks for your time tonight. in the w
, but how far would and could the obama administration go to prevent a full fledged massacre? >>> and a powerful earthquake leaves one of new zealand's largest cities in ruins. dozens are dead, and more may be trapped under crumbled buildings and chunks of concrete. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we fin with a very, very real danger that anti-government protesters in libya could be slaughtered in huge numbers. the strong man moammar gadhafi making it clear today that he won't go down without a fight. eight days into the demonstrations against gadhafi's regime, at least one person in the libyan capital is reported hearing bullets are being fired non-stop. this is the picture gadhafi wants the world to see. we're told libyans were dragged into the street and even offered money to show their support though for gadhafi. and in a rambling speech today, the libyan leader rejected demands that he step down, and he warned that his opponents would pay with their lives. >> translator: whoever cooperate with foreign countries in order to initiate war against libya
. >> it's mysterious. she'll be in court today. president obama is reaching across the aisle today inviting house republicans to lunch at the white house. molly henneberg is live in d.c. with the details. molly, what's happening with this? >> good morning. well, president obama will meet with senior advisors this morning and with secretary of state hillary clinton this afternoon. but in between that, he has a political power lunch, the president will host the top three republicans in the house of representatives. house speaker john boehner, majority leader eric cantor and majority whip kevin mccarthy. these two sides, the president and the house -- and the house republicans, you know, they frequently don't see eye to eye, for example, the house already has voted in a largely symbolic move to overturn the president's signature health care overhaul legislation and likely to take future steps to defund it. the white house gave a preview of this lunch meeting yesterday. here's more. >> i think that the president looks forward to discussing all issues foreign and domestic. obviously,
poll will be. no, it will not be obama. thank you. >> one feature of the conservative political action conference every year is the presidential straw poll, voted on by those who attend the conference. the top winners are the same as last year. ron paul got 30% of the vote followed by mick rahm 8 with 23 percent of the vote. former new mexico governor gary johnson and new jersey governor christie receive 6% of the vote. last year pottery third-place finisher was former lasted governor syrup island. this year she finished ninth with 3% of the vote. next, former white house press secretaries to talk about life in the white house. then the white house congressional dinner. after that from the conservative political action conference, mississippi governor haley barbour. now, a discussion of the role of the white house press secretary. we will hear from michael mccurry and dee dee myers preserved under president clinton and president george w. bush's press secretaries dana perino and frank sesno. george washington university's school of media and public affairs posted this event. it
judicial activism. but the judge used obama's own words from his 2008 campaign when he supported health care reform without an individual mandate. here's the concern, he says. if you haven't made it affordable, how are you going to enforce a mandate? i mean, if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness, by mandating everybody to buy a house. mitt romney knows that conundrum, being for something and against it. he's knocking the president's health care reform but defending his own in massachusetts which included an individual mandate. >> the states have rights that the federal gust doesn't have. under the tenth amendment of the constitution, the powers of the federal government are specifically limited. the states have the rights to, for instance, mandate kids going to school, mandate auto insurance. states have certain rights they can exercise and the right thing for the president to do now with these decisions saying his bill is unconstitutional, with the house taking action to repeal it, with the senate considering doing so, he should press the pause button and
some because late 2009 into early 2010 as obama's numbers were taking across-the-board on all the issues. one issue, barack obama had a plurality of support and approval on terrorism and national security. the question is this why did this politics happen when the reality everyone seems to be otherwise to answer that we have pat caddell and john mclaughlin. >> hi am not trusting with anything mechanical. >> you are setting me up for the fall. >> watching what is happening in egypt this could not be a more perfect panel. watching president obama reminds me of charlie brown and the football. every time you think he is gone he is back. the point joel just made that is important to discuss, we are here on behalf of secure america now organization when you go to their web site, in the same spirit of my friend richard dreyfuss who are am happy to see here. we are stunned by a lot of people for being here but the idea of this group is a grassroots to new group and grass-roots effort to developed -- to secure america, input into our political discourse the point joel just made. 9% of
crackdown on anti-government protesters. president obama plans to speak out about the situation in libya in just a matter of minutes. we'll have live coverage here. critics have been questioning the president's silence. stand by for that. >>> oil prices spike to the highest level in over two years amid reports that libya's production has stalled. this hour, how the unrest there could threaten the economy here in the united states. >>> and a new legal move by the obama administration reignites the divisive debate over same-sex marriage. amid revolts overseas and budget battles here at home, a lot of people are asking why now? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." these are some of the latest pictures of libyans demanding freedom and defying moammar gadhafi's brutal crackdown. opposition forces have made gains outside the capital of tripoli a day after gadhafi vowed to fight to the death to hold on to power, but witnesses tell us the streets of tripoli are virtually empty right now, except for blood, bodies and burned cars. the white house says president obama will speak out in
obama announcing economic sanctions against the regime saying the united states will freeze billions of dollars in government assets. the economic vice may get tighter. the united nations is holding a weekend session and they are debating a resolution that would impose their own sanctions. julie banderas is covering that angle. >> julie: they are honing to get a vote while there is a broad support for a draft resolution to impose international sanctions against muammar khadafy's government. some countries remain split over whether to refer the issue to the rarely used international criminal court. at a closed-door meeting, china right now is the only country still objecting to an immediate icc referral which would include an investigation of crimes against humanity committed by khadafy against his people since february 15th. the crackdown has resulted in the killings of at least a thousand civilians. meantime, the u.n. resolution was drafted by u.k. and france that would include an arms embargo freezing assets and a travel ban against khadafy, his family and top lieutenant commanders

strange. the latest from karl rove that the white house, barack obama, is engineering the birther stuff because it makes republicans look silly. it's obama's fault. excuse me, karl, it's republicans who mess with the birthers. we begin with what has become a huge national story. the wild sensation in wisconsin centered in madison. for a second straight day, schoolteachers and other employees have called in six or done some other job action. all of the democratic state senators in the legislature have blocked passage of the bill by apparently splitting from the state they're out of the state. the scene in wisconsin looks to be a long awaited confrontation between republican state houses in the power of democratic leaning public employee unions. let's turn to michael bolten. a union director for the steel workers. thank you. michael bolten, sir, thank you for joining us. if you have to explain this to somebody from norway or not out there, what's this about? >> this is a so-called budget repair bill has nothing to do with repairing the budget. has nothing to do with creating 250,000 jobs.
opposition figures to be executed. >>> the obama white house is keeping track of the big picture in the middle east and noting that every kun interest where we're seeing protests is a little different. we want to bring in our senior white house correspondent, ed henry. ed, what's the administration saying about the newest uprisings which are hard enough just to keep track of it. >> reporter: it is, candy, and it's interesting, jay carney, the new white house press secretary, the first briefing today and right out of the box he said the president is watching very close lit developments were you talking about, libya, bahrain, all through the middle east as well as north africa, but he was also very careful, jay carney was, to say what you just suggested which is as the president noted at his news conference yesterday, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to these protests, that each country is different, and the administration is going to be careful not to dictate to each government about what to do here, but by the same token the administration is not shy about making sure to

. charlotte has to do with politics. president obama won that state narrowly in twit. 54 trs to 90%. democrats like what they are able to do in their 2008 convention in denver. use that as a tool to win the state of colorado, which they did in 2008. they'll try to end up having repeat that magic come 2012. of course, it won't be easy. north carolina is a state that usually votes republican. it voted democratic in 2008. certainly news that democrats are excited about. republicans will be holding their convention in tampa, florida. back to you, chris. >> thank you very much. republicans are cheering a judge's ruling that president obama's new health care law is unconstitutional. roger vincent decided congress, "overstepped by forcing all americans to buy health insurance." the white house calls the ruling judicial overreach and the justice department will appeal. what does that mean for you? richard lui is here with those details. >> at risk changes that are already in effect. if the law was halted nationally, you would not get a $250 drug cost rebate that is already in effect. expanded coverage
. gloria, the conventional wisdom has it that the government shutdown would help president obama politically, like the one back in '95 helped bill clinton politically. does that conventional wisdom hold in this case given the mood of the country. >> well, you know, at this point, i think what voters voted for is the congress and the president to work together and get something done, wolf, and if you go to the brink on this and you have a government shutdown, sure, perhaps president obama and democrats could benefit a bit from it, but overall, independent voters do not like this brinksmanship. they want it to end. that's what they vote for. you know, when they voted democrats out of office, it wasn't a mandate for the republicans per se. it was a mandate to get something done, so i actually think it's in neither side's interest right now to shut this government down, and it sounds like, if you listen, the leaders of both parties and the president don't want to do it. i think the wild card here, wolf, are the 87 new republican house freshman who may say -- who may not have been thr
issue of barack obama? president obama praised you back in 2007. the fact is barack obama is quietly supporting rahm emanuel, his former chief of staff. >> barack obama did not do a formal endorsement of rahm emanuel. barack obama supported me in 2007 in my race for city clerk. i served with barack obama for eight years in the illinois senate. i'm pleased with the fact that he decided not to do a formal endorsement in this race. he realizes this election should be decided by the voters in the neighborhoods of the city of chicago, not by endorsements nor by the millions of dollars that have come from will the the gentlewoman yield and wall street and washington, d.c. in support of rahm emanuel and other candidates in this race. >> one of the quotes you gave to the "chicago sun times" was when rahm emanuel was hiding under his desk because of his friendship with the clintons, i was doing the heavy lifting. i was the first latino to endorse barack obama for senate. i know i have earned the president's praise. he has spoken highly of my work in chicago's neighborhoods. do you feel the pr
't know. i don't know. we'll see. >> palin then slammed president obama's budget, which she says does little to reduce the deficit. >> i think that's an overstatement to say we are making a dent in the national debt and in this practice of deficit spending, because it's not really even a dent. i mean, maybe a littthumb print positively affecting what we need done with the deficit, and the debt. not nearly enough. his spending plan does add to the debt and does allow for the next ten years, still, deficit spending. that is the wrong road to be on. that will not cure economic ilz in our country. >> all right. she alsopraised cuomo. she criticized questions of obama's -- oh, no. citizenship, and she called it a distraction. >> good for her. >> there is still -- into his third year as president, there are still some people out there still questioning president obama's faith and citizenship. do you question his faith and citizenship? >> i don't, and those are distractions. what we're concerned about the economy and the policies coming out of his administration. >> all right. i found someth
and coming up this hour, virginia congressman gerry connolly will talk about president obama's speech to the chamber of commerce. then louisiana congressman, cassidy. he practices medicine in baton rouge and alexander young on the global economy and the u.s. stock market. this is "washington journal." . . host: let's begin with "the hill " newspaper. what are your thoughts on this? do companies have a responsibility to the u.s. workers? independentsif you look at "thel times" headlines on this -- "obama urges executives to share perks." let's listen to what president obama had to say on this yesterday at the chamber of commerce. take a listen. >> your responsibility goes beyond recognizing the need for certain standards of safeguards. if we're fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports to help you compete, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those of the top. they have to be shared by american workers who need to know that expanding trade and opening markets will whip their standards of living as well as your bottom line. we canno
again. one thing i did not miss was bill o'reilly's interview with president obama. and that happened before the game. he had 14 minutes to try to get in as many questions as possible. he had to start with the news of the day and egypt first and he had a very pointed question for the president about whether or not the muslim brotherhood is in fact a threat to america. >> the muslim brotherhood a great concern to a lot of people. are they a threat to the u.s.a.? >> i think that the muslim brotherhood is one faction in egypt. they don't have majority support in egypt. but they are well organized and there are strains of their ideology that are anti-u.s. there's no doubt about it. but here's the thing that we have to understand. there are a whole bunch of secular folks in egypt. there are a whole bunch of educators and civil society in egypt that wants to come to the floor as well so it's important for us not to say that our only two options are either the muslim brotherhood or a suppressed people. >> you don't want the muslim brotherhood? >> what i want is a representative government
, president obama facing his toughest critics when he addressed the chamber of commerce. criticizes for being anti-business, this morning the president defended his record and urges corporate leaders to help fix the economy. take a listen. >> as we work with you to make america a better place to do business, i'm hoping that all of you are thinking what you can do for america. ask yourself what you can do to hire more american workers, what you can do to support the american economy and invest in this nation. >> nbc news chief white house correspondent chuck todd joins us now. the headline has been reading he's walking into the lion's den, you know, certainly not friendly between obama and the u.s. chamber of commerce. what did he have to gain by doing this today? >> this is almost more of the end of what has been about a three-month campaign to reach out to the business community a little bit more and when you look at the various staff changes he's made, bill daley, a former executive with a wire also company and the financial sector, gene sperling, a familiar face in the business community a
of uncertainty. there are more questions than answer at this particular moment. my hope, my hope is the obama administration will exert pressure on the army. there's a very close relationship between the u.s. army and the egyptian army. i do hope the obama administration maintains contact the egyptian army, impresses on the egyptian army the need for transparency, to transfer power to an elected egyptian government in the next eight or nine months. >> thanks to all of you for keeping us informed and giving us the benefit of your analysis. nice to see you mark. stephanie thank so you much. we let ali go. coming up the bogus debate about cutting this nation's budget. how politicians in both political parties are nickel and diming the american people when it comes to our debt. as a manager, my team counts on me to stay focused. so i take one a day men's 50+ advantage. it's the only complete multivitamin with ginkgo to support memory and concentration. plus vitamin d to help maintain healthy blood pressure.
